Trump, Trump Jr. Got Emails Offering Docs After WikiLeaks Made Them Public

Exclusive: Email shows effort to give Trump campaign WikiLeaks documents

CNN's admitted error was made in a Friday morning story written by Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb that said then-candidate Trump and his son received, via email on September 4, 2016, a web address and decryption key providing access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks. Though considering how anxious he had already proven to be to collect dirt on Clinton, and how his father had publicly sung WikiLeaks's praises over the summer, it is hard to believe he would have overlooked such an opportunity. "The suggestion that this information was not public is false".

Earlier this week, Trump Jr. spent almost eight hours testifying in a closed session before members of the House Intelligence Committee about a January 2016 meeting at Trump Tower and his communications with WikiLeaks, as part of an ongoing probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election in the US.

But the story began to fall apart Friday afternoon, when The Washington Post obtained a copy of the email, which CNN did not have. "They should have fired him for what he wrote", Trump said.

The email was sent on 4 September and Congress is attempting to figure out whether the email is proof of a legitimate attempt by Wikileaks to contact the Trump campaign, CNN reported.

The email was provided to investigators working on the Congressional inquiry into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign team and Russian officials during the 2016 United States election. "We have updated our story to include the correct date, and present the proper context for the timing of email". It directed the recipients to Democratic National Committee emails posted on Wikileaks and emails hacked from Colin Powell, which were released by DC Leaks - not Wikileaks.

Trump Jr. took the meeting, his own emails show, because he was promised " dirt " on Hillary Clinton. Testifying in a closed session before the House Intelligence Committee, Mr.

Trump Jr.'s attorney, Alan Futerfas, told CNN that his client said he had no recollection of the email and took no action on it. There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN.

It was just about three weeks after receiving this email that WikiLeaks started sending Trump Jr.

Trump Jr. may very well have resisted numerous approaches made to him by WikiLeaks.

This new revelation also raises again the question of why Trump Jr. did not contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation over any of this, as one is supposed to do when approached by foreign agents with offers of help for a presidential campaign.

In Wednesday's hearing, Trump Jr. downplayed his message exchanges with WikiLeaks over Twitter.
